Writer / consultant, The Kilowatt Company

I'm a deeply committed tech head who's been playing with a broad range of AV technologies since well before there was something called AV.  I love to know how and why things work, and stumbled on the fact that I have a talent for explaining what I've learned, so I've been teaching and writing about all kinds of technologies for a while now.  I've worked in AV, broadcast, live production, IT, publishing, consulting, and events. I've written the latest versions of the CTS and CTS-I Exam Guides and I'm currently  working on the next Exam Guide for CTS-D.  The most fun part of what I do is research into developing technologies to see how they fit into the future of AV and IT.

Doyle Martin

CEO, Martin Designs & Production, LLC.

I am a production and AVL expert dedicated to bringing creative visions and concepts to life. I left my production home of 16 years in November 2021 and am currently building my own consulting business while keeping my options open for the right opportunity.  Since 1994, I have had the opportunity - both as a freelancer, small business owner, and an executive team leader - to work in delivering solutions on a scale that most people rarely see while up against timelines that seem impossible. My diverse, well-rounded background allows me to understand almost any organization or project's technical, creative, time management, and team building needs. I pride myself on the ability to creatively overcome challenges while creating an enjoyable experience for both my team and our clients along the way. I believe the job of a true leader is about more than creating and executing a strategic vision or strategy. It is about being a trusted team member, mentor, and leader. It is about creating a culture of earned respect and mutual trust where everyone believes they are a vital member of the team. It is about a firm commitment to the complete satisfaction of every customer, stakeholder, and employee.

Senior Director, Marketing, avixa

I head up the marketing for InfoComm, the greatest tradeshow on Earth. Chat with me if you want to talk about InfoComm, working at AVIXA, or shoes! Follow me on Twitter @AVshoeQueen. Fun fact: I've been with AVIXA since 2013, and in addition to working on the show, I'm very proud to say I was part of the awesome team that rebranded us from InfoComm International to AVIXA. (I'm also very happy that we changed the InfoComm show team apparel from red to purple.)

Dave Haynes

Editor, Sixteen:Nine

Sixteen:Nine has been doing daily news and insights about the digital signage industry, globally, since Feb. 2006. Started as a blog, the online publication has since produced some 8,500 articles about the industry, technology and people. There is also a companion podcast with hundreds of long-form interviews. Sixteen:Nine is known as the industry's BS filter - a content resource driven by an effort to explain developments and advances in plain language and with context. The publication does not accept paid editorial, ignores roughly 9/10 press release sent its way, and never simply copies and pastes news from vendors and suppliers (something unfortunately common in pro AV and beyond).

Sixteen:Nine was started and still edited by industry veteran Dave Haynes. In 2021, the publication was acquired by the Florida software firm Spectrio. Haynes remains its editor and primary content producer, however, operating out of a home office in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
